From my easy-breezy summer kitchen: brown rice, beans, onion and asparagus quickly fried with coconut oil. Served with a side of kimchi. Similar recipe here.
I love lentils for many reasons. They’re nutritious (fiber, folate, magnesium, protein), fast and easy to prepare (no soaking required), they’re inexpensive and you can do so many different things with them (salads, stews, burgers, soups). Lentils do not need pre-soaking but can be pre-soaked to improve digestibility and reduce cooking time. I normally soak my […]
When I don’t have much food in the house I like to throw together a quick stir-fry. Things you can almost always find in our home are some sort of greens and quinoa or rice. This time I made mustard greens with quinoa, onion and cashews. You just “wok” all the ingredients together in some […]

Fall is here and weather has finally gotten cooler during the past week or so. As temperatures drop I start wanting more hearty, warm meals instead of salads. With the exception of homemade kale salad. That I can always eat. It’s just simply the best. I’ll post my recipe next week. But this week’s recipe […]
